Recently we noticed a big jump in the demand to know various details about Sakshi Tanwar and how we can disappoint our readers, so we decided to put together a very detailed biography of this great hindi serial actress Sakshi Tanwar. In this article we will cover her details like the serials she acted and her name in each of the serial, in which serial Sakshi Tanwar has acted as heroine, in each serial whom she cast with and what their real names are. Also some readers have shown interest in knowing Sakshi Tanwar’s family details we will see how much we can cover.

Sakshi Tanwar – Background, personal life and career

She comes from a town in Rajastan called Alwar. She was good at studies and if few incidences has not happened in her life she would have ended up being a doctor or an engineer. But God had different plans for her and may be us also. This natural actor’s entry into the world acting and shooting was also as natural as herself. The way she got her first entry into the world of television is quite interesting, she was only accompanying her friend for an audition for a serial of Doordarshan and as one more candidate didn’t turned up she got the invitation and I would say she grabbed it with both the hands.

Her story you call it luck, co-incidence or God made plan didn’t end there her role in Karam and the big turning point Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii also came her way very naturally without her asking for it. But it is hard to be convinced that all of this is just luck, no actually it is not luck but I will say Sakshi Tanwar’s hard work paid and got noticed. This mega serial went on for 8 long years and before she gets completely stressed out she decided to take good break though offers were lined up!

During her break she did some cameos in Crime Patrol and Balika Vadhu but the Ekta-Sakshi combo was missing and when they came together for Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (checkout full star cast) as we all know they rocked!

Sakshi Tanwar – Serials and her role

She was always a household name but she re-gained popularity after she took over the role of Priya Sharma in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. She signed-up for this role after long break. She was seen in lead role after a good gap of 3 years. Last serial in which Sakshi Tanwar played lead role was Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii which ended in year 2008. But when she made a come back she made it strongly. In quick survey we did on Facebook we found that if not all most of the people preferred her role of Priya over Parvati.

Sakshi Tanwar favourites

Favourite dress: Jeans and kurti
Talking about her dress and style difference between Bade Achhe Lagte Hain and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii she said “That was the look that was given to me by a team of experts. But, in real life, I’m a jeans and kurti kind of person! When I’m not shooting, I’m mostly dressed like this. So, when I was given similar kind of styling in Bade Ache Lagte Hein, I was more than comfortable!”
